MPAA/RIAA … over-inflated.

All it takes is one little “prick” and their influence will deflate back to the flaccid penis’s like the dinosaurs running them.

Next week:
China & Russia get the pirate party :iagree:
Russia & China give the content copyrighters the finger, and tell US companies to stop meddling in international political affairs.

yes because joining an undemocratic organization who sets out the worlds trading policies is a good idea… lol.

All I remember about WTO and Nafta was the lumber industry back home. USA started to charge huge tarriffs. And we won appeal after appeal under both those umbrellas, but the US just kept re-appealing for years until we had no choice but to give in. Pretty much making WTO and NAFTA useless…

I think its all overrated… giving that kind of power to some unelected agency… meh.

they dont realise how lucky they are to be out of the WTO. once in, they will be as deep in the shit as the rest of the world are, ie forced to take notice of what the ‘good ol’ US of A’ wants, or be under threat of trade sanctions etc, whilst doing no good to themselves at all!

yup I don’t get why countries are so eager to sign up for this shit. The US never abides by rulings (or pays their dues), which makes it completely lopsided anyways.
